Hello and thank you

Hi All

Just joined but been using the forum resources for a short while - really helpful and looking forward to participating in the future. I have been a very long time film and digital photographer - mainly people and travel - and have recently started the shift away from Nikon to the Olympus system.

Best - Dan

Re: Hello and thank you

Welcome aboard Dan. I'm sure there are lots of us who will be interested to see your photos, and hear about your experiences with switching and comparing the two systems.

John

Re: Hello and thank you

Thank you all for the welcome. I have just tried my first image post here but they all seem pretty small and low quality despite being 1000 pixels and within size guidelines.

The thread is in the Foto Fair but I am not allowed to include the link here - grateful for any guidance!

I think you've posted the thumbnail and not the image itself. It's something everyone seems to do since the gallery is pretty counter-intuitive. I never use it myself, but if you play around I'm sure you'll see what to do.
